  • What are your Favorite Rodgers & Hart tunes?  Dec 22 2015, 07:54:08 AM

    Not actually a Rodgers and HART because Larry had nothing to do with it, but "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" made the hair on the back of my neck stand straight up the first time I heard it. Nothing has ever been more evocative of the 1930s for me. I was instantly transported.

  • What is your favorite Broadway Theatre?  Dec 3 2015, 05:09:15 AM

    The Majestic. The Rodgers and Hammerstein house. Think of the shows that played there.

    The Neil Simon. Big but intimate. Ditto on the list.

  • How do they decide whether a show goes to Brantley or Isherwood?  Dec 3 2015, 05:07:40 AM

    Rock. Paper. Scissors. Knives.

  • Who saw the original THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG?  Oct 19 2015, 03:30:15 AM

    I remember that amazing set. Sparkling. So New York. So Broadway. I saw the original cast and can still close my eyes and see it.


  • Preview the new KING & I cast recording  Jun 4 2015, 12:47:35 AM

    I was just about to order the recording. Then I listened to the sample of the overture. Forget it. You can change the music inside the show if you must, and I have given up expecting to get the original dance arrangements, but you touch one note of that magnificent, towering overture and I am outta there. That is sacrilege.

    Next they'll "improve" the "Carousel Waltz."

  • Remembering CAMELOT in the Lusty Month Of May  May 17 2015, 01:02:30 AM

    I was lucky enough as a child to see the opening night in Toronto at the O'keeffe Centre before the show open on Broadway. I still have my mother, father's and my program (see below) and have loved the show ever since. It did, I remember, run for hours and I fell asleep toward the end, but the boom! boom! boom! of the field drum at the beginning of "Guinevere" snapped me out of that.

  • DOCTOR ZHIVAGO Previews  Apr 20 2015, 04:08:23 AM

    So I know nothing about this production. I watched the trailer and they rhymed "now" with "how." In a major love song. That was the end for me. Somewhere, Larry Hart is crying silently.

  • On The Twentieth Century Previews  Mar 5 2015, 02:47:27 AM
    Okay, so I'll admit I've been away for quite a while, but tonight, I watched the commercials for OTTC and I had a strange question. Maybe it's been answered and I don't know, but here it is:

    The original 1978 version had four wonderful African-American porters (historically accurate) and this version seems to have just one and three white guys. Now, for some reason, that seems regressive. Even though it was racially insensitive, the Pullman Porters on the posh railway lines in the 30s W

    Ben Brantley's entire article is the best pull quote I've seen in years. They should run the whole thing on a giant board above the theater.

  • Jerome Kern's ROBERTA Full Studio Cast Recording  Sep 1 2014, 06:49:03 PM
    The original show in 1933 starred Bob Hope and a woman named Tamara who accompanied herself on the guitar as she sang "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." The chorus was packed with people who went on to long careers, including, I believe, Fred MacMurray, Alan Jones, Ray Middleton and George Murphy. Roberta was played by Fay Templeton, who starred in shows with George M. Cohan, thirty years earlier. Sidney Greenstreet was also in the show.

    RKO bought the movie rights and put Astaire and Rodge

    Gee, is Tommy Tune dead? If not....
  • WOW CAMELOT FOOTAGE  Aug 7 2014, 03:44:20 AM
    Well, here's a better copy. Sorry I got so excited. Maybe this issomething everyone's seen before.

    Just not me....

    Maybe I'm behind the curve, but this is new to me.
  • Here Is The Official INTO THE WOODS Trailer  Aug 1 2014, 03:13:35 AM
    I know you're all excited, but this is a movie based on a Sondheim musical and the trailer has no music. So frankly, we're all just leaving the trailer humming the sets. That's worrisome. You can't trick an audience into watching a musical by making them think it's a drama. Twice.

    I actually thought it WAS a Tim Burton trailer. Guess I should visit here more often.
  • Jackie Hoffman joins cast of ON THE TOWN  Jul 31 2014, 05:08:06 PM
    BTW, it's "Madam Dilly" not "Tilly." And the song she sings is a showstopper.
